Shopping and night markets are also plentiful. Another plus, Sanya Phoenix International Airport (SYX) is just a 15-minute car ride away.
Activities abound in Hainan. Hit the beach to collect seashells and splash in waves of the clear blue sea. Enjoy a watersport activity, go diving, or charter a boat. Play a game of tennis or a round of golf. The area has a number of high-level golf courses, several convenient to the hotel.
An easy drive away, Tianya Haijiao, which means “edges of the heaven, corner of the sea,” boasts impressive views. Or, check out the beautiful butterflies at Sanya Butterfly Valley. Located near Longtan Lake, the valley has an exhibition center and a butterfly enclosure.
